7-25-74 Chicago International Amphitheater - out of a lovely Dark Star. The next day's newspapers were saying in their reviews that the band had a band meeting and decided that night, that, to paraphrase from memory, 'if they can't afford to tour and do it right, then they don't want to do it at all'. Could explain - given the nature of this song - this emotive, if not slightly scattered Stella Blue.


Maybe 'cuz there's rain on the way, I'm also thinking you might find some deep beauty in this one:

You're right about the scattered Stella, maybe Jerry was still caught in the slipknot. One thing I like about this one is how Billy follows Jerry's guitar picking on the outro with tom rolls, cymbal rolls, snare rolls. Good example of musicians really listening, watching each other, totally in synch. As for 5/13/77, very, very slow which is a good thing. I do like how they come out of this into goin' down the road. Fun show all around
